Turning successful videogames into pinball tables is a fairly logical step. Turning them into fruit machines is an altogether trickier business.
Nevertheless, it's been done a surprisingly large number of times over the years, with varying degrees of success.
There are some videogame fruities that actually do a pretty fair job of capturing the main gameplay elements from their arcade parents, and this Retro Gamer piece – previously available to WoS subscribers – takes an in-depth look at both the hits and misses.
(As a bonus, most videogame-based fruit machines can now be played via emulation, which enables you to crank up the payout settings to the maximum and experience features that you'd normally have almost no chance of seeing unless you put a hundred quid in.)
